Easy Anzac Biscuits

Anzac biscuits are my Dad’s favourite and I used to make them all the time “back in the day”.  I figured it would be pretty easy to have a vegan version as from memory the only non-plant based ingredient was butter.  I’ve adapted this recipe from this one here.

Kīnaki (makes about 15)

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup dessicated coconut
  • 1 and 1/4 cups plain flour
  • 1/4 cup of plain sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar  (or use whatever sugar you have – I just like the caramel brown sugar gives)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp hot water
  • 50 g margarine
  • 60 g coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup (or maple syrup or agave)

Huarahi

Preheat the oven to 170° C.

Mix together the oats, coconut, flour and sugars.  In a saucepan over a low heat, melt the margarine, coconut oil and syrup and stir.  Pour the two tablespoons of hot water into a cup and dissolve the bicarbonate of soda, then add this to the melted ingredients in the saucepan.

Add the melted / bicarb soda mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until combined.

Roll mixture balls (about golf-ball sized) and flatten with a fork.

Bake for about 20 minutes until golden and transfer to a wire rack to cool.  (The longer you bake the crunchier they’ll be.  Personally, I like them a bit chewy in the middle…)
